Kapote is back with a new EP. The Berlin based head of Toy Tonics, passionate vinyl digger and DJ comes back with 3 new tracks. As always the Kapoteâs music is hard to file under one genre. "I hate clichees in dance music" he says. "My DJ sets are never committed to just one style and so i want my EPs to be more open than most DJ records are." In fact - if you ever heard Kapote playing records you will recognize his amazing ability to create a flow out of very different records. He might start with downtempo Hip Hop, swap into mid tempo french house and fly over to broken beats and techno in just one hour. The main connections: he loves Funk. And he has a groove. And like his DJ selector style are his own productions: On the new EP he starts with a very deep, sample based 118 bpm house track: Temptation. Quite similar to the mood of the recent Black Loops or Coeo tracks on Toy Tonics. But already with the second tune he leaves the usual house 4/4 groves and comes up with a - 100% sample free - jazz house mid tempo shaker. A lovely track that has a jumping beat and chord combination that is very hard to classify. It might remind certain stuff coming out in the mid 1990ies dance jazz scene. Kapote produced this track with a little help by his Toy Tonics brother Munk, who played all the bass and synths on this track. The final track then goes hard into the breakbeat funk corner. These beats are so dirty. The keyboard solo - a Moog played by Munk again - is so funcked up. Sick. Yeah, this could be hard to be played in "normal sets". Itâs really music for the freaks. But the freaks come out at night.. and Mr.Kapote loves the freaky shit.. as he does love jazz and funk. You can hear that.
